What stinks about your and you're, is spell check doesn't catch it.  If you're in a hurry, you miss it.

That's the whole problem with the digital age, or electronic age or whatever you want to call it.

If I pick up a pen and paper there is no spellcheck, I need to know how to spell and take the time and care to proof my work. You shouldn't make that error in the first place and you certainly shouldn't be relying on a phone to make your writing legible.

I'm not casting stones because I make the same mistakes too but it really saddens me that we are losing so much with the advent and proliferation of digital/electronic tools. Nobody can remember anyone's phone number anymore because of cell phones and spelling is a lost art.

Don't even get me going on the lazy ass, bullshit "text" speak that everyone is starting to accept as normal.

I know your post is tongue in cheek but...I grew up on John Irving, Ernest Hemingway, Robert A Heinlein and Mark Twain among countless others. If everyone forgets how to spell and construct functional sentences, let alone beautiful ones, who will be the authors of the future? I worry about that.

Meh, we'll be dead. Who cares? :-P

Probably intentional, but I think it deserves a spot here.

It is the same for me.  When I text my son, or anyone else for that matter, I spell everything out.

 

I am horrified at work when I see presentations or e-mails from Directors rife with spelling and grammar errors.  Have some pride in your work fellas!  I think it reflects poorly on a persons professionalism.  I work with a lot of folks from different countries, so if there is an error in their work, I let it go.  But more often than not, it is the English speakers (UK included) that seem to be a bit lazy.

 

Love Mark Twain by the way.  I bought his autobiography, but it is a bit disappointing.  There is a lot of editor crap and opinion in it.  I don't care what you think about the author!  I just want to read what the Man wrote!

Not only do I spell everything out, I have to use all punctuation including any "?" and "." as appropriate. I don't care if it is obvious that it is a question.

The best thing about Siri on the iPhone is you can say the punctuation and it will put it in for you.

Android says you're welcome for that.

How about "Have some pride in your work, fellas?"  and "a person's professionalism".  and "Love Mark Twain, by the way."

 

I think that you meant spelling, grammar, and PUNCTUATION errors.  Or did I come in on the end of an example and now the joke's on me?  Either way, no offense meant or taken.  I love the thread.

I think we might have to give saeval his own dedicated thread ... you know, to help you to keep track of his debts. ;)

I'll always advocate being relaxed. If your in a stance that is just stressful or awkward to maintain, don't do it.

 

Also, don't be afraid to slouch your shoulders a bit more and really tilt your head down. The ball is the closest to your body than any other shot in golf, just because your wielding a short club. So, to get overtop of the ball, and see the ball with out looking down the bridge of your nose towards the ball, you really need to tilt your head down. Look at Jack, he looked like he hunched over the ball, one of the better putters of all time.

 

 

I always thought Tiger had the best posture, his head is clearly over the ball, looking down. His shoulders are slouched a bit so it allows him to rock his shoulders on a good path to keep the putter from doing stupid shit.

 

This is something i was struggling with. I would stand to tall and end up hitting it left or right because my shoulders would rotate on a shallow angle, they need to be steeper.

 

 

As for grip, and other things, all personal to you.

 

As for the putter, get fitted for one. If your adding lead tape, not sure if its a good putter for you.

I count $4 for this one post alone ... and that's not counting the less egregious stuff like "with out," "its," and "i".

'nother couple'o'bucks in the pot.

Thanks :beer:

 

Trying to correct my old ways is tough going since I've had years of practice with bad grammar. Its like trying to fix a golf swing. :-P

 

I think a dollar an error is a bit to steep. You'd still get a lot of money if it was just a penny an error.
